Magnificent Gems from Sotheby's

 
Ruby and Diamond Ring

Ruby and Diamond Ring

Sotheby's Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels auction in Geneva achieved sales of US$ 160.9 million, the highest ever total for a Jewelry auction. Records were broken throughout the evening, culminating with 'The Sunrise Ruby', an exceptional and immeasurably rare 25.59-carat Burmese stone, selling for over $30 Million a world auction record for a ruby.

My favorite part of this ring is the absolutely fabulous color red. Such rich color for a ruby. The diamond accents are beyond description with their uniquely cut shapes.

Truly a magnificent Jewel.
